    Ahh just not a very nice lady who pretty much gave me a research scientist interview and not much else! Have you had one?

    Really?!? That's so unfair ... And yeah I had mine in November - I thought in mine they didn't push me enough!! and it was only 10 mins long!!! So I'm worried - how long was yours?

    my interview wasn't great. i had a man and a woman. the man cut me off after every sentence and would spring a new question on me so i never got to really answer a question.
    I feel the same, so gutted about how badly it went, the questions were genuinely weird😔 nothing I expected so that threw me off. Didn't help that the interviewers kept cutting me off. Wahhhh really loved Liverpool aswell

    I only had questions on my volunteering and teamwork and why I liked Liverpool!!! Sounds like they asked different people very different things

    Yeah that's so weird.. I went on an impression that I got from this thread that's why weird questions were so shocking. Ah well. Guess we've got to hope for the best 😖

    Ahh really! Seems like there's been a real mix, suppose it just depends on the interviewers! :/ mine was 15-20 mins long!

    Thanks, but im pretty sure it went bad. I just completely blanked on ethics, I think I perhaps over-complicated things and got all muddled up. Good luck if you are yet to interview though!
    I think you probably nervous and that might have got you a little disorientated :/ The interviewers (hopefully!) should take into account that you're probably nervous and the fact that you "overcomplicated" things is probably better than over-simplifying them. At least you've shown that you can think in a complex way and, hopefully, they'll account for your muddling up as nerves Thank you!!! Still waiting...

    For people with interviews: on the work experience form they only have 3 spaces for work experience, but I've mentioned more in my personal statement so shall I just copy and paste the 'organisation name/address/etc' for as many as I need? Also, this sounds stupid but did you hand write or type the form? I have hand written in capitals so its clearer, as can't type it unless I change their formatting?
    I copied and pasted and added on the other one I'd mentioned. Just to be safe I figured that was the best way to go about it. They didn't say that was wrong when I gave it to them so should be okay

    Wow, mine was different. They were nice but the interview was definitely not 'traditional', got some really weird questions.

    But I don't they'd make it that different, the interview is semi-structured so they must cover the topics they mentioned in admissions ???

    You can just stay in the interview waiting area, or go to madison's cafe in the sherrington building across the road and come back for the tour.

    I had my interview back in November. Two women interviewed me..one was enthusiastic and smiled, the other kept a poker face but I didn't let that bother me. It was quite relaxed but I guess I'll have to wait till march to see if I've got an offer 😩

    Had my interview in early dec - On one question at the beginning I started answering the wrong thing and had to be steered back onto the question, does anyone know whether this is going to have a big negative impact on my interview score?!
